Advent Lessons & Carols
Sung by the choir of All Souls with brass and timpani accompaniment
Featuring the music of Franz Biebl, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Paul Manz, Elizabeth Poston, and more.
This service consists of readings from the Bible telling of the promise of the Christ child, interspersed with choral pieces and congregational hymns. This festive retelling of the ancient prophencies will perpare us for the joyful celebration of the Mass which follows.
Thank you for checking out the music ministry at All Souls Church. In our weekly 11am Mass, the congregation singing hymns and service music appropriate for the day.
The parish choir offers music before and during the Mass in the form of anthems, motets, and psalmody. In keeping with our namesake, 'All Souls' are encouraged to actively participate in the music of the church. The choir rehearses on Sunday mornings and new singers are always welcome.
- July 2014: Plans are underway for a choir pilgrimage to the United Kingdom where we will serve as choir in residence at two Cathedrals.
Younger voices receive musical training in singing handbells during Sunday school. Sunday school meets during the first half of the 11am Mass each week. The Sunday School choir offers music in the 11am Mass once each month.
